Is heartbreak the worst thing to go through, or is living life not taking risks and missing out on experiences because you’re too scared to get hurt? Too distraught of the idea of a failed love?
I always try to keep the love I have together. But maybe instead I should just let life breathe. I need to stop trying to controlling circumstances. I need to stop trying to change people. I need to focus on controlling my thoughts, and actions. I need to practice on being full of love and light. Just a thought. #vulnerability#communication#selfawareness

Adversity happens for us, not to us. This pearl of wisdom became clear to me years ago during one of the most challenging, AND transformational, times in my life. I wasn’t only on the wrong seat of the bus - I was on THE wrong bus. Yet I remained in a place that caused me tremendous angst and in which I wasn’t appreciated for my value and effort.
The universe sat back and watched...providing me the opportunity to realize my own value and make decisions that would best serve me. I didn’t get the memo, nor the message. I attached myself to a victim mentality that served as an excuse to remain stuck. What I didn’t realize then, which I see clearly now, is that the Universe had a plan B. It involved pain, adversity and a life lesson that I would NEVER forget.
You see, the more miserable I became in the place in which I was at, the more self sacrificing I became. I put others’ needs before my own - advocating, placating and enabling. My irrational thought process was that if I wasn’t going to gain fulfillment where I was, I could at least get people to like me, which would make me feel appreciated. It didn’t quite work out that way... instead someone I had supported and trusted turned on me, in the worst way possible. The betrayal felt debilitating... for a period of time. Until the day came that I “woke up” and realized it was time to become the creator of the life I wanted.
So I left. And slowly I began to search for, and find, my purpose. Today I think about that time and person and am grateful. If it hadn’t happened I wouldn’t be where I am today, living my passion and purpose. We may not always be able to see the “why” when we’re in the midst of adversity, however I now see that it’s all part of the plan! #gratitude#overcomeobstacles#trust#liveyourbestlife#thankful#empowerment#selfawareness
This is my ethos. Aubrey Marcus talks about having an ethos in his book which is what led me to create one for myself. It helps me get through challenging emotions, thoughts, and situations (when I can remember it in the moment rather than hindsight lol).
Breathe - find the present moment. Breathe deeply. Everything is okay.
Accept - accept that this reality is happening. The more we fight back the more we suffer. Accept things as they are and that you’re a human being, it’s okay to feel this way.
Trust - trust that this is happening for you, not to you. It’s all part of the process. There is a lesson.
Observe - be the witness. You are not the thoughts, you are the thinker of them. Sit back and watch them come through.
Focus - focus on what you can control. Your attitude. Your mindset. Your action.
Love - remind yourself of your true nature. Remember that there is a foundation where we always are, our egos just tend to distract us. Be Love.
Surrender - The desire for control creates more resistance, and the idea of external control is just an illusion anyways. Let go and let it flow.

Apparently, I shared this 8 years ago as a wish for future self.
Happy to report that my future (now) self is living the dream. 😎
Becoming is so individual. It's unravelling and piecing together. Breaking and stitching up. Unlearning, then learning again. Burying and unearthing. It's messy and raw. Cutting yourself open or being cut, then having the courage to sew the parts of yourself back together that hurt. It's glorious and grief filled. A whisper that becomes a rageful roar. It's standing at the edge of a cliff, and keeping your eyes wide open while you step off...spilling out onto the ground in a work of art you never intended. It's fumbling around in the dark and finding light in unexpected places. Surprising yourself that you can stand when your legs feel like Jell-o and your soul is shaking. It's searching for your voice and realizing it was there all along, ready for you to share your truth. -kt

Don't believe a gratitude practice can change your life? Keep reading!
First, do a quick google search on gratitude and how it can literally change the structure of the brain. I don't want to get into the science on here. I'd rather help you feel the difference.
Second, try this practice:
Place your left hand on your heart and your right hand on your belly. Close your eyes and start to observe your breath. Do this for 5-10 rounds of breath. Then ask yourself, what am I grateful for? Whatever pops up, bring that person, place or thing into your mind and begin to allow whatever feelings arise to enter into your current experience. Allow yourself to fully feel the joy that this person, place or thing gives you. Revel in that joy for a few moments. Don't let anything stop you from feeling whatever you feel, if you start to smile, let that smile go from ear to ear. If you have some excitement about it, let it out as if it were here in your current experience. Let the love, joy, peace, amusement, pleasure, security, etc wash over you for as long as you wish to stay there. Don't rush the process.
How do you feel compared to how you felt prior to this exercise? I'd love to know, comment below!
Investing energy in all that is beautiful🌱

Do not let ANYONE bring you down, you’re far too superior to have negative feelings about yourself! People that have the most to say don’t have any knowledge, they try to force THEIR fear on you, remove yourself from THOSE people IMMEDIATELY! #dmvcreditsolutions

It is so important for us all to detox, unplug and unwind. Think about what you would do with an extra 30 minutes that you usually spend scrolling through unnecessary things on social media. Or how many of you get distracted by incessant ringing of notifications that stop you from focusing on one thing. ⠀
Five ways to ‘detox':⠀
1) Declutter your feed ⠀
2) Exit group chats you don’t need ⠀
3) turn off notifications ⠀
4) Only follow account that you feel add value to your life ⠀
5) examine how much time you spend on social media. ⠀ #kkconsulting ⠀ #emotionalintelligence ⠀ #selfawareness ⠀ #socialawareness ⠀ #selfmanagement ⠀ #relationshipmanagement
For many of us, being aloneness is believed to be a negative thing. Being alone often carries a social stigma, implying isolation, or being on the outside.
For some, aloneness can feel like loneliness -a condition where your own company is never enough and where spending time with yourself may create feelings of anxiety and sometimes worse symptoms such as panic attacks and depression.
For many, the ideal solution to keep this fear away is to make sure that you are always in the company of another.
Although aloneness and loneliness are often thought of as one and the same, they're not.
Learning to be alone can be initially scary, but once mastered, serves as the cornerstone for your development and growth as a human being.
There’s so much to be gained from learning to rely upon — and more importantly, to trust — your own inner voice as the best source for your own guidance.
Being alone allows you to drop your “social guard,” thus giving you the freedom to be introspective, to think for yourself.
You may be able to make better choices and decisions about who you are and what you want without outside influence.
Often, we are swayed by the thoughts, feelings, attitudes, beliefs, and behavior of those in our immediate sphere.
Of course, you may ask others for their advice and opinions, but ultimately, consulting yourself and making up your own mind about what you want to do will lead you into the life that’s best for you.
Things are going to be different from now on. - “God showed how much he loved us by sending his one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through him. This is real love—not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins. Dear friends, since God loved us that much, we surely ought to love each other. No one has ever seen God. But if we love each other, God lives in us, and his love is brought to full expression in us. And God has given us his Spirit as proof that we live in him and he in us. Furthermore, we have seen with our own eyes and now testify that the Father sent his Son to be the Savior of the world.”

A spiritual awakening is sparked by those who don’t want to lead a life that’s too painful.
If you’ve had a spiritual awakening you dispatched your higher self to crack the code of this version of the Youniverse.
That awakening opened your heart, mind and soul.
You’re no longer asleep. You have AWAKENED!
You’re CONSCIOUS now.
This means you’re aware of the fact there is in fact another PRESENCE with you now.
A higher self and source that has basically answered your 911 call.
Here to aide in the shift of trajectory of your life.
But now that you’ve had that awakening it’s your DUTY to continue to elevate, to expand to evolve.
The work is NOT done.
Your job is now to continue to RAISE your frequency MAINTAIN your frequency and create a NEW world.
A world DELIBERATELY created by you.
If your living a life that is out of spiritual harmony then that will continue to enslave you to lower dimensional frequencies which will continue to cultivate what you DON’T want in your life.
It’s time to rise up as the EMPOWERED being that you already ARE.
You no longer hope, wish and “try” to create your life on purpose
You COMMAND your reality in BEING!
Your kingdom is awaiting you.
The throne is OPEN!
Unleash the REBEL Inside is HERE🤘

“Some of our struggles are things we're born to: our gender, our sexuality, our race, our disability. And some are things that happen to us: being a political prisoner, being a rape victim, being a Katrina survivor. Identity involves entering a community to draw strength from that community, and to give strength there, too. It involves substituting "and" for "but" -- not "I am here but I have cancer," but rather, "I have cancer and I am here."
“When we're ashamed, we can't tell our stories, and stories are the foundation of identity. Forge meaning, build identity. Forge meaning and build identity. That became my mantra. Forging meaning is about changing yourself. Building identity is about changing the world. All of us with stigmatized identities face this question daily: How much to accommodate society by constraining ourselves, and how much to break the limits of what constitutes a valid life? Forging meaning and building identity does not make what was wrong right. It only makes what was wrong precious.”
“We don't seek the painful experiences that hew our identities, but we seek our identities in the wake of painful experiences. We cannot bear a pointless torment, but we can endure great pain if we believe that it's purposeful. Ease makes less of an impression on us than struggle. We could have been ourselves without our delights, but not without the misfortunes that drive our search for meaning. "Therefore, I take pleasure in infirmities," St. Paul wrote in Second Corinthians, ‘for when I am weak, then I am strong.’”
“Forge meaning. Build identity. Forge meaning. Build identity. And then invite the world to share your joy.” - Andrew Solomon | TED 2014 | How The Worst Moments of Our Lives Make Us Who We Are

“Remember, holding space for someone’s potential and focusing on seeing the best in them is a beautiful quality. As long as it’s paired with heart discernment, which is the willingness to see red flags and accept the truth when people show you exactly where they’re at. To allow others to do their own work is a love language.
The current energies are inviting us to examine where we have blindly trusted people and been let down. When we have had faith in someone only to end up disappointed because they weren’t in integrity. Without blame or judgement, just self awareness of how we have given power away.” - via @maryamhasnaa#riskhappy
